AlertEnterprise is a contributor to the NIST Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) and continues to highlight the benefit of IT and OT (Operational Technology) integration. The National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) provides businesses with real-world cybersecurity solutions—based on commercially available technologies. The center brings together experts from industry, government and academia to demonstrate integrated cybersecurity that is cost-effective, repeatable and scalable. Hosted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) the center fosters collaboration with industry to identify and solve today’s most pressing cybersecurity challenges.
Organizations are challenged with implementing a single identity and access management solution across their entire enterprise. Each user within an organization has multiple roles and identities, including identities to access physical locations, logical systems, and even specific roles to access control systems that operate critical infrastructure. Companies have not had a way to effectively govern and manage identity and access risk across these disparate systems, and have been forced to implement multiple point solutions that are ineffective, inefficient, and costly.
AlertEnterprise delivers a powerful business layer with Identity and Risk Analytics, Delegated Administration and Self-Service capabilities that centralize access requests across not only IT applications and systems, but uniquely extends across Physical Access Control Systems and plant assets like SCADA and DCS for operators of critical infrastructure. The AlertEnterprise reference architecture above enables enterprises to leverage a common digital identity and provision directly to IT, Physical Access Control and SCADA/ICS OT systems.
